shortening period on HBC

Hi, sorry if this has been asked before. I looked through the tags and FAQs and couldn't find anything, and Google is of no help.

I've been on Desogen for about four months. I am supposed to start the inactive week today, but I really don't want to have my period this coming Saturday (long story). I tend to have a long period, so I know if I go through the whole inactive week I will probably still be bleeding by the weekend.

Is it possible/safe to shorten my period by cutting the inactive week short? Say, taking 3 or 4 days of the inactive pill then starting my new pack a few days early? Or would it be safer to just skip my period entirely and start my next pack today? I know it's safe to do this, but the idea of skipping my period entirely still kind of freaks me out :\
